Quarren is a species named for the aliens who are commonly called Squid Heads
by the galaxies general populace. These amphibious beings share the world of
Calamari with the Mon Calamari race, though the Quarren prefer the depths of
the floating cities to the upper reaches the Mon Cals call home. The Quarren
are more practical and conservative than their idealistic world-mates. Whereas
the Mon Calamari have adopted the Basic as their language of choice, the
Quarren have kept their oceanic tounge. The Quarren are sea dwellers, able to
live out of the water, but preferring the security of the ocean depths, These
pragmatic people are unwilling to trust new ideas. They do not dream of
brighter tomorrows like the Mon Cals, but instead hold fast to the reality of
yesterdays. While they profess that the two races should remain in the sea,
they have followed the Mon Cals into their floating cities and out among the
stars. They have become dependant on the Calamarians, and this dependancy has
led to resentment and outright hatred. Rumors persist that it was a small
number of Quarren who helped the Empire originally invade the planet. In the
face of invading forces, Quarren cooperated with the Mon Calamari to repel the
Imperials. But since that day, many Quarren have fled the planet to seek a life
elsewhere in the galaxy. They seem to have purposely remained apart from both
the Alliance and The Empire, preferring to find a place on the fringes of
society. Quarren can often be found working with pirates, slavers, crime lords,
smugglers, and other unsavory sorts.
